River Bend Casino opens doors after renovation

8 June 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Since 2007, the Wyandotte Nation Casino has been a source of gaming, entertainment and great food. Two years ago, the Wyandotte Nation began a project to renovate, rename and expand the casino, making it a top-tier destination in Northeast Oklahoma.

With the addition of a new luxurious three-story, 92-room hotel with 6,000 square feet of conference space, meeting rooms and amenities, the newly-named River Bend Casino Hotel offers a resort style getaway or business conference destination.

The hotel project features 92 beautifully decorated hotel rooms, including six suites furnished with Sleep Number beds, full baths with double sinks and rain shower heads, bars, kitchenettes and a half bath in the living area.

A small fitness center on site offers workout equipment, or guests can shuttle to the nearby Bearskin Fitness Center.

The inviting lobby features a free-standing fireplace, reception and reservation desk area adjoining the casino. The hotel is an ideal location for business meetings, conferences, conventions or workshops, with the ability to offer four different configurations of spaces equipped with audio-visual equipment. The conference center rooms can seat 90 people with tables or can merge into a larger room that seats 180. Without tables, the conference space can accommodate up to 540 people.

The addition of the hotel situated to the west of the casino allows River Bend Casino to accommodate the many travelers who come to play, eat and enjoy live entertainment. The earthy color scheme, reminiscent of a brilliant Oklahoma sunset, is sleek and modern and fits with the scenic landscape of the area.

Along with all of these renovations, a name change had been considered for a few years to make the move to a more commercial re-branding. The River Bend naming honors the Wyandotte Tribe's removal and relocation to lands near the St. Lawrence River, then on to the Ohio River and the Sandusky River before settling in Wyandotte, Oklahoma, where the Spring River and Neosho River converge and flow into Grand Lake at Twin Bridges.

The hotel meeting rooms are named for the rivers the tribe has migrated through.

In addition to the newly added hotel, the River Bend Casino received a $30 million expansion and dazzling makeover with an enlarged casino and added amenities including the Twin Bridges Restaurant, an Event Center, Club 60 West and a bowling alley. Live music is performed by local bands and singers onstage at Club 60 West and the Event Center stage. Slots, progressive video games, poker and blackjack tables are offered on River Bend's gaming floor.

The Twin Bridges Restaurant has expanded hours for breakfast and lunch to accommodate overnight guests. The restaurant also serves conferences, holiday parties and special events.
